Tahoma High sophomores get their grub on before tackling the second day of the HSPE | Slide Show

Hundreds of sophomores munched on slices of pizza and grilled cheese or consumed frozen yogurt from tubes Wednesday morning in the commons at Tahoma High School.

This is the second year the Tahoma Parent Teacher Association provided food for 10th graders prior to taking the High School Proficiency Exam, a state-mandated test required for students to graduate, and teens took advantage of breakfast.

The idea is to send teens into the exam with a full belly so they can focus thereby making the most of the preparation they've been provided by Tahoma teachers to do pass the test which focuses on reading and writing.
